To the dismay of screenshot enthusiasts everywhere, Instagram is rolling out a new feature that alerts creators when someone decides to immortalise their temporary Instagram Stories using a screenshot. (A similar feature already exists to alert users to screenshots taken on Snapchat.) There are a few workarounds you can try to avoid alerting people that you're snapping pics of their stories to send to friends and make fun of, though if you want to be completely safe you should probably just stop screencapping (or using Instagram) in general instead of looking for ways to be a recordkeeper of temporary content. Why give anyone the chance to call you a creeper?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

A feature that identifies who screenshots your public posts is not a bad feature, unless you learn about it the hard way - trying to creep surreptitiously. And it appears that Instagram is now quietly testing such a feature within Instagram Stories, the Snapchat-like service that lets users create a sequence of photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours.

Hootsuite is a popular social media management tool but it has suffered from one frustrating feature, at least for me. While it's allowed you to create Instagram posts, it hasn't been able to schedule and automatically publish them. Changes in the Instagram Graph mean it is now possible to schedule Instagram posts so they are automatically published.

Android/iOS: Your favourite social network for pretending you have a perfect life is now ready to let everyone know when you're online and lurking. Instagram is adding an activity status indicator to the people in your Direct Messages list, letting you know when they're on and ignoring that last funny video you sent. If you're of the same opinion as me, you're probably wondering how to disable this terrible new feature. Good news, lurkers: You can!

Ever since that first "Dear John" letter was delivered by carrier pigeon, breakups have sucked, but social media makes them suck harder. Even if you block, hide and unfriend, you can still be attacked by an unexpected photo of your ex posted on the accounts of mutual friends. Rather than be the victim of such virtual hostility, you should harness the power of social media to fight back, and prove to everyone that you are doing just fine, thanks.

Harassment and abuse on social media freaking suck. What also sometimes sucks: various platforms' inability or reluctance to effectively deal with it. But sometimes you've got to focus on what you can control and let go of the rest, which in this case means reporting harassment.

If you have a public Instagram account, then anyone else with an Instagram account can currently comment on your photos. That's great sometimes, but as we all know, the internet is can be a pretty dismal place, and letting anyone comment on your pics can occasionally (or not so occasionally) mean that you get a bunch of abusive or offensive comments on your pictures from a bunch of strangers.

iOS/Android: Instagram is a great place to share all kinds of fun visuals -- except for your favourite GIFs. Instagram won't let you upload them. Fortunately, the Giphy app will let you do exactly that right on your smartphone.
